Halifax Friends meet in person at Spencer House, 5596 Morris St, on Sundays from 10:30 to 11:30 and can be joined virtually by Zoom for those who prefer that option. Everyone is welcome! Please contact for Zoom meeting details or to be added to the HMM email list where we announce schedule changes and other matters of concern.
Every Friends (Quaker) Meeting for Worship is an experiment. Our worship is based on silence – not a passive silence but a waiting on God and an endeavor to reach a measure of unity with the Divine.
People enter the meeting room in silence. Meeting for Worship begins as soon as the first worshipper arrives. In silence anyone may speak as led by the Spirit. Everyone present takes an active part in the Meeting whether through vocal ministry or through silence.
Meeting generally lasts about an hour. The last ten minutes of Meeting are usually dedicated to “Worship Sharing.” This is a time when anyone can share their thoughts or concerns with the community.
The Meeting closes when Friends briefly take hands with those around them. Meeting for Worship is usually followed by announcements, introductions and delicious snacks.
Meeting for Worship is always open to new attenders, and new attenders are welcome.
Halifax Monthly Meeting has previously held our Meetings for Worship at the Atlantic School of Theology and the Ecology Action Centre. We hope to have in person Meetings again soon.
